A Letter to Myself

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Often we forget to extend love and kindness that we have for our friends to ourselves. I know I am my hardest critic. So, today I decided to give myself some love and kindness in a letter to myself.

Dear The Crazy Mango,

You are doing GREAT! I know you think you are not making progress towards your goal of losing 10 pounds by the end of April. But, you are! You started at 172 and today you are 168.8. Slow and easy, baby! You don't want to lose weight overnight. That is a fad. This is not a fad. This is a lifestyle.

Your internship and college graduation was a stressful time for you. You gained weight over four months. You won't be able to lose 10 pounds at a snap of fingers. It will take time and patience with yourself. You can do this!

Also, I know you are worrying and feeling guilty about sleeping in instead of having a workout. It's okay, hun. You needed the rest. Doesn't it feel wonderful? Besides, it's not like you will be idle all day. Since you work today, you will be on your feet for a good 6 hours and going up and down stairs several times. Maybe you can even hit it harder the next day.

So, hun, be kind and patient with yourself. Rome wasn't built in a day and neither will you be!

With love,

  Hi Savannah..........
Great letter. And......a great reminder to be as kind to ourselves as we are to others. We are often our own worst enemies.
Good for you!!!!!! emoticon

    Swetie, I couldn't have said it better myself! Good job! You're spot on with every single thing you said to yourself.

HUGS and keep plugging away. Life is just unfolding for you, and I know it will unfold in wondeful ways!
